Nice thread over there however . . . .
Have to agree. Of the big big 5 of the Golden Age, Ultima, Wizardry, M&M, BT, and the Gold Box games the GB were my least favourite. I was very disappointed when SSI got the contract as they had a reputation for doing tedious, ugly, heavy math simulations over and over again. The GB games were no different, though better looking than most of their other fair. I remember wondering why TSR couldn't do it right like Ultima and M&M, did they get a cheaper contract offer from SSI?

OVer the years though I've learned to appreciate the GB's games more. No one obviously did a more thorough combat system, and the isometric design that could generate itself around the dungeon itself was quite an achievement for the time.
